Hello. First of all, thank you for 500+ members! Despite the major inactivity, I'm glad you're all still here. Unfortunately, I'm not here to give a 500 icon post; I simply don't have the time nor the inspiration, because I haven't really seen any nice pictures I want to work on. I do have some announcements though.

1) CREDIT. Have you read this extremely helpful post? It saddens me greatly that my own members can't seem to credit properly (that is, at all).

2) I changed the community profile! Nothing fancy though.

3) I, avenue, will be going to Japan on the 23rd, until next January. I won't have Photoshop. I've been trying other editing programs that are compatible with my netbook, but so far, nada. So unless you guys have any ideas how to make Photoshop run on a 1024x600 screen, I won't be updating this community (with graphics) until next year. I'll try to come up with a post before I leave, though.

Your understanding is most appreciated! Thank you very much!

p.s. Shameless plugging:
My Twitter
My Twitter (fail Japanese)
LJ about my trip to Japan :P

I'm very strict on crediting. Not only should it be done with my work, but with any artist's work. I realize that it is a pretty difficult thing to do on the internet but there are also a lot of ways in which we can help promote other communities/people who work quite hard to give you nice, pretty things to use and look at (or whatever).

The following has been added to the F.A.Q. page:
*REMINDER* Crediting is not only limited to LJ. I cannot stop you from using my graphics in other websites but please try to link back to the community whenever possible, and not change the file name of the graphics. I'm part of a lot of websites and will easily be able to track which graphics are actually mine. Please exercise vigilance; credit and report those who do not.
Some examples of crediting on commonly used websites (besides LJ):
* Twitter - not changing the file name and/or putting credit on the bio
* Tumblr - linking back to devastationist via: 1) click-through link, 2) content source, 3) text under the picture.

If you come across an image you wish to credit or possibly find a source for (applicable to any picture/artwork/graphic), drag or upload the picture to Google Images, which has the function to look for similar images posted on the web. Find sites that have posted the image before, etc. Use this to your advantage.

You basically have no excuse to not credit, save for laziness. But that would speak wonders about you, wouldn't it? In truth, I don't want my graphics to be used outside of LJ since it's quite difficult to trace. So please try to credit from the get-go if you ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY MUST(!!!) use my graphics elsewhere on the int4rwebz. Remember, permission for anything is but a comment/message away.

On that note, thank you very much for supporting this slow community. I appreciate it very much m(_ _)m

frequently asked questions

1. Who are you?
Hello, I'm Ria, an ESTJ with far too many hobbies.

2. How do I credit?
By putting the community's name somewhere. For icons, you should go to Manage Userpics and follow the image below:
For any other graphic, a line on your profile is fine, as long as people can see it.

Ask! I don't save PSDs, but I could always try replicating it.
